We spoke to Ranjith Mukundan, CEO & Co-founder at Stellapps Technologies, following a presentation he gave at Nutreco’s conference, AgriVision 2021, held virtually, earlier this month.
Stellapps is a first of its kind startup in India working towards the digitization of the dairy supply chain. Started in 2011, it is a Bangalore based, Internet of Things (IoT) tech provider with a primary focus on data acquisition and machine learning.
The company is trying to address value chain inefficiencies.
It looks to digitize milk production, milk procurement and cold-chain management. It acquires data via sensors that are embedded in milking systems, animal wearables, milk chilling equipment, and milk procurement peripherals.
Mukundan talked to us about the benefits of digitizing India’s dairy supply chain, a segment that is highly fragmented and dominated by smallholder farms.
